The No Hope Positivity Defined

It has been more common than the Sun rises in the East, do we hear to always be positive. My fellow countrymen global will agree that in any instance of life, any situation fatal or anyone deceived, in all the cases we are supposed to be positive and hope that good times will prevail. This has become primarily universal. It is the way you see, some with theories and some with positive quotes.

Interestingly, I have a silly logic on a half glass full water depiction for a positive attitude. I say that you would see half a glass of water if you are thirsty and half-empty if you are not thirsty but have the scope to fill the rest half of the resource. So either way you are being positive in your approach is my second belief.

The third angle I want all of us to explore is that of those who don’t see hope or cannot even dream of hope but LIVE ON. Talk about the daily wage laborer/ farmer who many times sees no hope but continues to PLOUGH IN, the weakest students in any class who many times have had tutorials and scolding but sees no hope to gear up with studies or maybe just mathematics but READS AND WRITES ON, the employees with the limited facilities see no hope to satisfy the reasons to retention, have an option for relocation and growth opportunities but care to be resilient and productive at the same time, at the current work front.  What should this attitude be termed as? Ultra Positive or Unknowingly Positive.

These categories of people can be characterized as the agents of positivity in line with the dedicated motivational speakers. I appreciate these two types of specialized sects of people who are doing great in spreading the positive attitude and imbibing the essence to think and be positive. The latter do it through their talks, videos, sessions, etc., and THE FORMER THIRD ANGLE, EMERGE THEMSELVES AS THE POINT OF REFERENCE FOR THE LATTER. How Remarkable !!! 

What if the third angle people are taken as the speakers? First of all, they would not want to and in case they do, they will engrave another real-life instance next to you in your neighborhood; especially when we bank on global celebrities and the most successful people for positive ideas. 

Congratulations on being the third angle positive yourself and standing tall. This proves that you are here to accomplish one more purpose and that is to see the hope in the no-hope world. 

Please don’t jump verdict that the author is being negative as he writes on the third angle. This is what we miss the moment we step out of our domain. To nurture and feel free to disagree. Smiling in the face of trouble and being calm in the face of provocation, would entail the fourth phase of positivism. No lessons no talks no motivation… just introspect all is within you. There is a need to take out sometime for yourself, RESPECT YOURSELF and LIVE ON.
